Academic Integrity

Our office acts as a source of general information for students and faculty on matters pertaining to the academic integrity policies and procedures of the University, faculties, and schools.

The Senate policy on Academic Integrity Procedures - Requirements of Faculties and Schools outlines certain procedural requirements of Faculties and Schools, including the essential requirements of any investigation into an academic integrity concern, while also providing guidance regarding jurisdiction, offences, and sanctions.

While there are certain issues that may be Faculty-specific and may be addressed through individual faculty regulations and procedures, some common standards must be maintained among academic units to ensure that all students involved in an academic integrity concern receive equitable treatment. Therefore, Faculties and Schools are required to develop their own procedures for handling academic integrity concerns. Procedures must be published in the respective Faculty/School calendar and be readily available in Faculty/School offices.
